The bookstore "Livraria do Globo" begun as in a little store located at "Rua da Praia" Number 268. The bookstore was open daily from 6:30 am to 10:00 pm, including Saturdays. With a little business success, the bookstore started working as a copy and paperwork center, making bookbidings and other small services and the building where it was located underwent a slight remodeling.

Its first branch store was created in Santa Maria, near the old ferryway center of Rio Grande do Sul. The "Livraria do Globo's" owners decided to create an own magazine, called "Revista do Globo".

In the 1940s, the bookstore company reached its top success, with three branch stores in Brazil's South Region and offices in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. In 1986, the bookstore was sold to Rio Gráfica Editora, property of Fundação Roberto Marinho, that decided to rename its publishing house to Editora Globo, which continues as the current name.
